An overview of the events we have attended throughout the years. In these events we showcased our technology and/or presented our vision on smart mobility.
Dutch Technology Week 2018
8th June 2018
Attendees of the Dutch Technology Week at the TU Eindhoven campus were invited for a ride in the autonomous car around the campus. The car communicated with a smart traffic to autonomously slow the vehicle down for the red traffic light, and resume driving again when the light turned green. The demonstration ended with the car performing an autonomous parallel parking into a parking spot.
Smart City Expo Barcelona 2017
14th November 2017
The ATeam was part of the Dutch delegation at the Smart City Expo Barcelona, representing smart mobility in Brainport Eindhoven. At the expo, the team explained all the features and benefits that automated and connected driving provide for smart cities at the moment and in the future.
Dutch Design Week 2017 – Mind the Step
21st October 2017
The ATeam showcased their HMI design during the Dutch Design Week – Mind the Step this October in Eindhoven. Their HMI system increases confidence throught different design solutions, providing situation awareness for all those involved.
11th September 2017
The ATeam was at the 67th International Motor Show (Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung, IAA) 2017 in Frankfurt, Germany. The team was part of the Holland High Tech Pavilion, hosted by RAI Vereniging. ATeam Eindhoven had brought their autonomous and cooperative Toyota Prius and presented their technology to the world.
High Tech Campus Open Doors Day (DTW 2017)
20th May 2017
The ATeam, partnering with NXP, demonstrated cooperative and autonomous driving within the High Tech Campus. Guests were invited for a ride in the autonomous car around the campus. The car communicated with smart infrastructure, such as a smart traffic light and roadworks along the way. The demonstration highlighted the benefit of wireless communication on the road to assist autonomous driving and showcased the future of smart and safe mobility!
Not Just a Girlsday – Automotive Campus, Helmond
13th April 2017
The ATeam was present at the so called ‘Not Just a Girlsday’, an annual event welcoming girls and boys from secondary schools to introduce them to different aspects of technology. The students and teachers could take a look in the car and see what technology is needed to make autonomous and cooperative driving possible and ask questions about the car itself.
Automotive Week 2017 – Automotive Campus, Helmond
26th March 2017
The ATeam demonstrated cooperative and autonomous driving to the big public on Sunday via livestream from the Toyota Prius and BMW, showing what’s happening in the Prius itself during the drive. During the Friday, attendees were invited for a drive and could attend lectureres concerning setting up the communication between the two cars.
Demonstration Get Into The Future
30th November 2016
The ATeam was invited to demonstrate autonomous driving at the Get Into The Future event in Amsterdam. Attendees had the opportunity to sit in the Toyota Prius and experience for themselves the features of the car like lane keeping. Here the car would independently drive between the lines on the road. Furthermore, the driver did not have to use the pedals for braking and accelerating as the car autonomously followed a cruise speed and braked for obstacles.
Electronica 2016 – Messe München
8th November 2016
Cooperative driving takes another step towards becoming a reality as the ATeam partnered with NXP to demonstrate wireless communication between a smart traffic light and an autonomous vehicle. The demonstration took place at Messe München in Munich, Germany.
Opening Ceremony of Singularity University
3rd June 2016
The autonomous car from the ATeam was present at the Singularity University Opening Ceremony. Furthermore, a demonstration was given for all attendees.
GCDC 2016 – Helmond, The Netherlands
28th May 2016
The ATeam participated in the Grand Cooperative Driving Challenge (GCDC). This was one of the highlights of the i-Game project, an European research project in which the next step towards the cooperative automation of vehicles are taken. The A270 between Helmond and Eindhoven was closed off to test three different traffic scenarios: merging two rows of vehicles up to one, joining a T-intersection and automatically give way to an emergency vehicle.
7th April 2016
The ATeam was invited to present and demonstrate their work on Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control (CACC) and autonomous driving at the 2016 Intertraffic Exhibition in Amsterdam. The presentation highlighted the importance of interconnected cars and their impact of traffic flow. The demonstration showed the benefits of cooperative driving with the added experience of sitting in a self-driving car.
IDIADA Safety Workshop
28th March 2016
The proving grounds at Applus+ IDIADA, in Tarragona, Spain, held the Safety Workshop before the Grand Cooperative Driving Challenge (GCDC) 2016. All the teams participating in GCDC 2016 were required to attend the workshop where the overall safety of the vehicle and the equipment on-board was determined. In addition, checks were done to ensure that the driver could overrule the automated mode at any time, either by braking or by steering. Four members of the ATeam attended the workshop and the ATeam Toyota Prius passed all safety checks.
